Derrick L. Darden. Jr., 22, of Vicksburg was arrested Monday at 9:45 p.m. on a warrant for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

This arrest follows a rap video produced in early 2021 in which several subjects displayed firearms. Darden is the fifth out of six suspects wanted on felony charges in connection to the video. Tyler Mixon, Jemarcus Trisby, Marvell Amos, Quinton Norfort and Deldrick Harper were previously arrested in connection to the video.

Another suspect, Charley Brown, was arrested in April 2021 but was charged with a misdemeanor.
